Mass Culture is an arts research organization that seeks to support
dissemination of arts and cultural research across Canada. Through a
network of stakeholders, Mass Culture will address cultural research
issues at organizational, sectoral and governmental levels. It is
found in 2015, acquired its charitable status.
Since is it a charity organization that works as a non-profit, their
budget was limited for the events that they are planning. For their
two-day exclusive paid event, they were collecting donations, giving
out discount codes for the first day. They did not plan an event
with an online event management software before, however, thanks to
their new employee who has experience with vendors, they considered
to utilize one. They were suggested to use MeetingHand by one of our
existing users and contact with us.
With MeetingHand’s supportive approach for non-profits, their
decision-making process was pretty fast. However, it seemed a
complex process to set their event with discount codes, donations,
additional workshops. In the end of the day, it was their first
experience with a vendor and those are time consuming steps of
planning an event.
Despite registration form seems as an easy step of an event, their
exclusive event’s registration form was quite special. They needed
to collect as much information as possible from their attendees,
which would enable them to build their web page in an extra-ordinary
way. They included fields where they ask for a short bio, their
hopes, interests, social media profiles in addition to usual
registration form contents.
In addition to their extraordinary designs, with the help of
information which they have collected in registration form, they
created a remarkable web page for their event. In that web page they
regularly update, they benefitted MeetingHand’s flexibility to
display their attendees’ information using “Speakers” module.
Incoming Payment Setup
To be able to collect their donations and payments, they selected
Stripe from MeetingHand’s payment gateways list. They created a
discount code for 100% discount. To prevent the holders of that
discount code’s to be able to put that code for all of their
services, they applied a rule for the first day of the event using
Since their budget was limited, they did not even think about
utilizing a mobile app for their event. However, with MeetingHand’s
Free Mobile App option, they set their event’s mobile app and
displayed their attendee list, services they offer and included the
Speakers module which they used as a display for their attendee
information to maximize the engagement of their attendees.
Although it seemed a time-consuming process to set all those modules
and automize their event’s collection process; with a short demo
with our expert support team members, they set everything out in a
day and were ready to go. *Due to COVID-19 pandemic, this event had
to postponed and then turned to a virtual one.
